Hannah - Trusted Dog Walker

“Max has been regularly going for fantastic walk with Hannah, a breath of fresh air away from home and was very well looked after. Will be using again and would definitely recommend to other pampered pooch owners. Hassle free and takes the worry out of going away from home even temporarily, and finding somewhere for the dogs.” – Fraser, Brisbane QLD

Paulette - Trusted Dog Walker

“Paulette was a fantastic puppy walker! We know Archie and Bailey are going to miss going to walks with her!! We can’t thank her enough for taking great care of them! The kids ware loving all the photos and videos that Paulette sent us at the end of every week day. We couldn’t ask for someone better and we know.” – Wendy, Bondi NSW

Greg - Trusted Dog Walker

“Greg looked after our dog Morgan better than I could have imagined. We could not walk Morgan because of our housing conditions at the time, with regular renovations occurring. I not only recommended but insist you use his walking services. Greg is a great and reliable communicator.” – Alex, St Kilda VIC

  2. What other services does Mad Paws offer?

    Unlike traditional pet minding services such as kennels and veterinary clinics, we offer a wide and unique range of services that aim to engage and make your pet feel as loved and as happy as they do at home. The services that are available through Mad Paws are:

    • Pet Sitting – Is overnight pet sitting in the pet’s home. The pet sitter can house sit and pet sit at the same time.
    • Pet Hosting – Is overnight care at the sitter’s home. This is where your pet goes and stay’s at the pet sitters’ house.
    • Doggy Day care – Is daytime care for your pet, this can be done either in the pet’s house or the pet sitters’ house.
    • Dog walking – Is where a pet sitter can come and walk your dog for you, the length of these dog walks are flexible depending on the needs of your pet.
    • House Visits – Is where a pet sitter can come once or twice a day, to check on your pet’s and feed them. They can also spend an hour or two with your pets as you require.
    • Pet Grooming – Is our Pet Grooming service, and can be done either at your house or at the pet sitters’ house.
    • Dog Training – Is our dog training service, and can be done either at your house or at the pet sitters’ house.

    Service rates will vary in price depending on the age and size of the pet, the number of dogs, and the length of the stay. Make sure you read all the information on the sitter’s profile before making a booking. We also strongly recommend completing a Meet & Greet to discuss the details of the booking as well as meeting the pet sitter prior to the booking.

  3. What does the Mad Paws Insurance cover?

    At Mad Paws, the safety of our pet owners, pet sitters and pets is of the utmost importance. We want our pet sitters to be able to provide a fun, and safe service, but not have to foot the bill for an insurance premium to helping out their local community members! This is why we, at Mad Paws, have organised and arranged a Public Liability insurance policy which provides Insurance for all pet sitting services booked in through the Mad Paws website.

    The insurance policy applies for all services booked through MadPaws.com.au. This includes:

    • Boarding (Pet Sitting or Pet Hosting);
    • House Visits;
    • Pet Day Care;
    • Dog Training;
    • Dog Walking;
    • Cat Care;
    • Bathing;
    • Grooming;
    • Transportation.
    Mad Paws offers free Public Liability insurance (not to be confused with the usual illness cover that most pet owners already have for their pets). Public liability covers any damage or injury to a third party or their property which is due to negligence of the pet sitter whilst the pet is under the pet sitter’s care. Please note that there is a $350 deductible for any Insurance case, and this is payable by the pet sitter. For full details on our Insurance cover, click here.

    If you believe that any incident is covered under the Insurance Services, you must provide us with written notice of the incident, along with all material documentation available to you evidencing the foregoing (e.g. invoices and veterinary notes from the initial veterinary examination), no later than seven (7) days after the end date that the Pet Services were provided under the relevant Booking.

    For property damage we have a specific Damage guideline in place.  To read about our Damage guideline, click here. In addition, we also have a helpful article which explains what to do in case of emergenciesHelp, there’s an emergency!
